Security for varied, dispersed systems regardless of power levels

Windows embedded systems are an increasingly popular target for cybercriminals. These devices tend to operate inside the corporate network, are geographically dispersed, and usually handle critical data, such as credit and debit cards. End-of-life Windows XP is still a standard for many of these systems, as is low-end hardware, while Linux-based systems are on the rise.

Kaspersky Embedded Systems Security is specifically designed to protect these systems against attacks targeting their contents and exploiting their weaknesses.

Challenges of using embedded systems

Resource constraints

Limited system resources mean it’s impossible to use regular endpoint security without severely impacting performance

Specific attack vectors

The purpose-based architectures and operation mode comprise an attack surface that is dissimilar to that of regular computers

Unattended / public use

Embedded devices operate in remote and public spaces, increasing the risk of direct interference and impacting maintenance

Weak connectivity

Low speed and/or erratic connectivity impacts protection and manageability

Data security & compliance requirements

The financial and personal data processed on embedded devices are sensitive and subject to regulations

Software that’s too old – or too new

Many embedded devices use outdated OSs that contain vulnerabilities, and which most modern security solutions don’t support. And protection for new Linux systems is rare.

Benefits of specialized protection

Maximum protection for every configuration and power level

Maximized protection

Multi-layer security with opt-in protective layers

  • Every device gets peak protection that its resources can support

  • The latest protection against evolving, even unknown cyberthreats

  • Powerful self-protection mechanisms reduce risks - including direct interference

  • Minimal implementation impact on business processes

Optimized resource use & compatibility

Reliable protection for modern as well as old, resource-weak systems

  • Supports Windows and Linux-based systems

  • Resource constraints don’t impact performance

  • Remote location and poor connectivity are not a problem

  • Protects even legacy equipment using obsolete OSs

Compliance & data safety

Upholds data security and industry regulations

  • Hardened security means fewer incidents

  • Integrity monitoring further strengthen protection

  • Support for native Kaspersky or third-party SIEM facilitates accountability and helps with incident investigations
